JBL 410 headphones broken

Hi! I have a pair of JBL ref 410 headphones that i accidentally broke. The plastic connector piece holding together the head band and the ear piece snapped into 2. i was wondering if JBL has these parts as spares, and if i could get my headphones repaired at the local service center? Thanks

    I was able to drill a small hole up through the cylinder-shaped chamber leading to the ear piece and then epoxied a metal screw into the broken area. Worked for me

The same happened to me. JBL says that repair services are not available for this product according to their website. Their suggestion is to buy a new pair!!!!!. What a shame. JBL products are quite good but the post service is ****.

After this happened to me, it felt like a real shame to throw these out when the drivers were still perfectly good. So I bought a pair of cheap 40mm headphones and transplanted the JBL 410's drivers into them. The fit was perfect and I can continue to enjoy that beautiful, bass-heavy sound.
I would think that any pair of 40mm headphones where the cable goes into each side should work. I swapped them into a Zumreed ZHP-005 knock-off for less than $15, and I'm sure there a lot of options out there for that price or less. If you've got some soldering skills, you could probably get the JBL 410 drivers to work with headphones where the cable is on one side (like the Urbanears Plattan, Panasonic RP-HTX7, etc).

The cord that goes into the right earbud is broken. But the problem with fixing it is that the break is right by the earbud where the cord goes through the metal piece.

ear bud is glued so it can be cracked open with a razor but be careful ouch... the wires in headphones are hair thin so you have to be careful as there are 3-5 wires that have to be seperated then soldered..difficult. If its less than 1 year and major brand most are warranteed for a year call the manufacturer and ask.. But yes if you are good with solder then you can fix

You may want to return it to the store as soon as possible, before your warranty runs out to get a new pair. It seems to me that there was a problem with them at the factory in which they were produced.

Plastic connecting left headshell broke apart

If the tape holds it in place then I suggest a good brand of superglue might hold on for a time. The only other cause of action I can suggest is visiting a Pioneer service center and seeing if the part is still made.
If all else fails have a look at the bottom of my tip on repairing dodgy cables and plugs, there is a suggestion on what to do with a broken headshell.
